Lately Iâ€™ve started going back to d4 - Iâ€™ve found Iâ€™ve been able to draw with players graded 20 points higher than myself, and Iâ€™m winning the easier games - a slightly conservative way to play with the white pieces, but it beats getting taken apart.
I always enjoyed playing against the Sicilian, it was the French (which I believe you yourself beat me with Tim, in a rapid play last year) which mainly bugs me - I love playing it as black, so psychologically I hate been on the white side of it

Team chess can help as well, you can borrow ideas and styles of play from those you sit next to.
